A Quick Review Of The Brother MFC-490CW Printer
This model from Brother is a wireless all-in-one inkjet and it is aimed at the home market. The model is very similar to other all-in-one machines from Brother but there are some differences. The Brother MFC-490CW ink cartridges that supply the ink are only available in standard size and the model will not accommodate XL sized inks. The controls are simple to use and although it has a fax there is no answering machine function. Fitting the four Brother MFC-490CW ink cartridges is simple and once the software has been installed you are ready to go. Brother MFC-490CW printer cartridges deliver prints at speeds of 33 pages per minute for mono and 27 pages per minute for colour.
Brother MFC-490CW Compatible Inks
Photographic prints produced by the model are good with natural colours, smooth gradations and good sharp foreground details. Standard cartridges produce pages at 3.4 pence for black and white and 9.3 pence for colour. If the model took XL Brother MFC-490CW printer ink cartridges, these costs would be reduced. If you plan to do a lot of printing then the costs with this model may be a little high but the results are very good. Using compatible replacement inks would help to lower printing costs.
